Happy Canada Day!
To celebrate Canada Day I am re-posting my poutine series on “The BEST Poutine on Davie Street”. What better way to celebrate being Canadian than to drool over our perhaps most famous authentic Canadian food: poutine!
This is Vancouver’s Best Poutine on Davie Street Part 4 of 4.
For the other posts in this Best Poutine on Davie Street series:
- La Belle Patate – The authentic Poutine

The following is the written conclusion and summary of The Quest for Vancouver’s BEST Poutine on Davie Street with material that may not be included in the videos.
The following is a quick recap/summary of the 3 poutines:
Poutine 1 – La Belle Patate
This is not representable of what is actually ordered. I’m so embarrassed…I forgot to take my picture before I started eating it. I didn’t follow usually routine because this was for the video blog.
- Small $5.50 Medium $7.50 Large $9.50
- Red Potatoes, hand cut, skins on, freshly fried
- The “gravy” or as they call it the “poutine sauce” is actually completely vegetarian. (A wheat based sauce)
- They do offer meat “gravy” or meat “poutine sauce” and it’s under the name of “BBQ”
- Best cheese curds – fresh, firm, squeaky, don’t melt
- Authentic Montreal poutine
- Foil to-go containers
Poutine 2 – La Brasserie
Truffle Poutine – 5/6
- Fries, cheese curds, pork gravy, truffle oil $9
- Kennebec potatoes, hand cut, skins on
- Gourmet poutine
- Best pork gravy with lots of truffle oil, a bit of a kick and freshly cracked black pepper
- The cheese curds were part mozzarella cheese rather than an actual cheese curd.
- It’s savoury, very aromatic with the truffle oil
- Comfort food with a gourmet twist.
Poutine 3 – Fritz European Fry House
Poutine – 4/6
- Small: $4.50 Medium: $5 Large: $6.50 Jumbo: $7.50
- Russet Potatoes, hand cut, skins on, freshly fried
- Firm and a bit crispier than the other two.
- Layer their poutine – fries, cheese curds, gravy and repeat.
- Good ratio of ingredients.
- European Fry House – focus on dips
- Gravy enhanced with black pepper and some dried herbs.
- Mozzarella cheese curd – stringiest of all 3 places.
- The most ooey gooey, saucy and cheesy poutine.
- Muchies/Hangover food
- Styrofoam to-go container
Added note: This review is a little different because it was for my video blog. Therefore the food at La Belle Patate, La Brasserie, and Fritz European Fry House was complimentary, (although I did offer to pay) but my opinions are still honest and as non-biased as I can be. The opinions and views expressed in “The Quest for Vancouver’s Best Poutine on Davie Street” review and video are those of Follow Me Foodie/Mijune only. There is no paid advertising and as always I write for the benefit of the customers and not for the restaurants.
